December 28, 2015 3:41am
28 December, 2015 - InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG®), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, has signed a management agreement with Kebsup Group Company Limited to open the first Hotel Indigo® in Phuket.
Set to open its doors to guests in 2018, the 180-room Hotel Indigo Phuket Patong will be located in the northern end of the bustling Patong beach town, renowned for its lively shopping scene and a wide variety of restaurants and bars peppering the busy streets. Guests staying at Hotel Indigo Phuket Patong will enjoy the hotel’s close proximity to the beach in the day and the easy access to the town’s vibrant night life after sundown.
Hotel Indigo is IHG’s boutique brand. Each Hotel Indigo property is designed to reflect the culture, character and heritage of the local neighbourhood it is located in, so no two properties are the same.
Guests at the new Hotel Indigo Phuket Patong can fully immerse in the stories of the Patong neighbourhood which will feature distinctly in Thai-inspired décor and artwork, whilst locally-inspired menus at the hotel’s restaurants and bars will be designed to offer diners a true taste of the island.
Leanne Harwood, Vice President, Operations, South East Asia, IHG said: “Phuket is one of the top resort destinations in Thailand, welcoming more than five million tourists in the first half of this year alone. We are delighted to be launching our Hotel Indigo brand in the Patong beach town with our partners Kebsup Group Company Limited to cater to the growing number of both domestic and international visitor arrivals to the island. We are confident our guests will welcome the arrival of the new Hotel Indigo Phuket Patong where they can truly enjoy the individuality and style of a boutique hotel with the security and consistency of an international hotel company.”
Ms. Chalermluck Kebsup, Director, Kebsup Group Co., Ltd. said: “Phuket as a destination grows in popularity every year and tourists to the island are increasingly well travelled and savvy. Hotel Indigo Phuket Patong will cater to travellers who appreciate the unique tastes and cultures that make up the vibrant Patong neighbourhood, and we look forward to providing them with great guest experiences through the hotel’s locally-inspired architecture and cuisine when it opens in 2018.”
This is the second hotel IHG is developing with Kebsup Group Company Limited. The hotel company is currently also managing Holiday Inn Express Phuket Patong Beach Central, owned by Kebsup Group Company Limited, which opened in 2012.
IHG has 18 hotels and resorts open in Thailand across five brands: InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express and Hotel Indigo. There are 13 hotels in the company’s development pipeline in Thailand, due to open in the next three to five years.
